Holly James is trying to move on with her life, but it’s not easy. She can’t stand to be touched by anyone, not even her own family. She is a lost broken shell of the person that she used to be. She realizes that shutting everyone out is much easier then opening up and letting someone hurt her.
Drew Walker is no prince charming. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and has no intention of changing. He loves the life of excitement and entitlement that comes with being the lead singer of a band, and has no plans to get tied down anytime soon.
When these two meet there is an immediate chemistry. The thing that surprises Holly is that she can tolerate his touch. He makes her feel like herself once again and gives her the freedom and comfort she has been desperate to find. On the other hand he is self-centered, egotistical, and everything that she should stay away from.
What happens when the one person who can save you might also be the person who can break you?
“There was something about Drew, but I had no idea what it was. He was self-centered, cocky, and definitely not prince charming. Maybe that’s why I liked him though. Maybe I didn’t want to be saved by the handsome prince. Maybe I wanted to be corrupted by the evil king.”
**Breaking Free is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**

Breaking Free by Alexis Noelle 4 ½ of 5 Stars Holly James cannot stand to be touched by anyone ever since she was kidnapped. That is until she meets the arrogant and bossy rock star, Drew Walker. When I first started reading this book, I was not sure if I was going to like it. Holly and Drew’s relationship took off so quickly I didn’t feel it was realistic. However, there was a very wise statement made in the book: you can’t put a timeline on love; it happens differently for everyone. Upon further thought, I feel that the speed of their relationship and my initial reaction was a totally success. Holly’s brother and friends also had a difficult time accepting their relationship, heck even Holly questions her sanity. I ended up adoring this book. I became more engrossed with every page. The emotion and passion are noteworthy. I admired that Holly followed her feelings instead of wallowing in her fear. I also respected that she stood up for herself to her brother and friends. Drew is a self-proclaimed control freak; a result of a tragedy in his youth. He knew what he wanted Holly right away. He is the definition of alpha male and extremely swoon worthy. Both Holly and Drew have scars in their past that need healing. They are stronger as a couple and help to heal each other. That is of course when they are not upsetting the other. I enjoyed the plot and reading about Drew’s lifestyle. Breaking Free is a wonderful novel that I am very happy to have read. If you enjoy contemporary romances with bad-boy rock stars, you won’t want to pass up Breaking Free. Complimentary copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review.
